Welcome to the Sick House

"Mommy's sick," I whisper, over and over and over again. Will they ever get it?

Not if they want a refill on the chocolate milk.
Not if the little guy is busy dive bombing off the back of the sofa, right on top of me.
Not if the bigger guy wants help drawing Batman so he's "Perfect".
Not if it's supper time, and they actually want to eat.
Not if they can't find their favorite video in the mess that now covers the living room floor.
Or their favorite book. Or any book.

Not even when Daddy's sick, too.

Not until bedtime comes early. Too early for them ... not early enough for me.

Mommy's not supposed to get sick. Ever. So somebody better FIX it. Right Now.

1. Mommies don't get sick. It's unheard of and expressly forbidden!

2. Daddies are however allowed to get sick (at least here in Canada). They have the mans version of a virus that is 10 to 100x worse than anything the mommy gets and can expect to get treated like royalty throughout the duration of the illness and beyond, so he won't have a re-lapse.

Get well soon!

p.s. You son is just trying to knock the germs out of you when he jumps on you! He's helping....how cute!

Let me know when you figure it out. The more I don't take care of my own illness, the more this drags out. I'm voiceless again.

Feel better soon, kiddo!
